Have you ever Dehydrated or Dried Rhubarb?
Here are simple steps for How to Dehydrate Rhubarb.
Since rhubarb is very seasonal, and produces a few large harvests, many people try to use as much of it "fresh" as possible.
Freshly harvested rhubarb can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. For longer storage it can be frozen, canned or dried.
If you have more rhubarb than you can use in a week it can be frozen. I find that freezing rhubarb is a very easy and successful way to preserve it.
Canning rhubarb is another method to preserve it, however I find the results of canning rhubarb to be less satisfactory.
Dehydrating rhubarb is another method of preserving rhubarb to enjoy all year long. Dehydrated rhubarb pieces can be used for rhubarb cake, rhubarb muffins, rhubarb crisp, rhubarb crumble, and other delectable rhubarb dessert recipes.
In general terms, dehydrating food is a method of preserving food in which moisture is removed from the food.
Dehydrating rhubarb and other foods is a process to prevent growth of microorganisms and decay, allowing for an increased "storage life" for food.
The rhubarb may appear brittle when dried, but it will reconstitute well when you include it in your rhubarb recipe!
